    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Shimmick Construction.

    Interview Details

    Talked to recruiter initially at a job fair, was called for an interview a couple weeks later. Flown in for the weekend. Full day of interviews and job site tours, then all interviewees were taken to a basketball game in a private box with a lot of the company employees and executives. Overall a long but very positive experience.

    Application Details

    The process took 2 days - interviewed at Shimmick Construction in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    Great time. They know how to have fun. There were about 10 short interviews with two or more people, and everyone they pretty much just asked "Tell me about yourself." Later they took us to the Lakers game, where you were able to network with the guys more. Overall it was a great experience, but this company isn't for everyone. I kinda got the feel that they try to make it out to be fun all the time and work isn't like that.
    Overall great guys, fun atmosphere, not for everyone, but check them out.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Shimmick Construction in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Morning: job site tour
    Lunch: CPK
    Afternoon: 10 interviews with 20-30 people in the company- each interview lasted 10-15 minutes
    Dinner: Basketball game at Oracle Arena to watch Golden State Warriors

    They like to work really hard but seem to play really hard too. May be tough if you're looking for work-life balance.
